Course: Victoria to Nanaimo
Distance: 60.40 nautical miles
1500 hrs. The race committee will be on station on the Ogden Point Breakwater
and the start will be between the Ogden Point Breakwater and Brotchie Ledge. Excellent
spectator viewing from Ogden Point. This leg starts in the afternoon, to take
advantage of the tide and to give boats the best opportunity of finishing in daylight
hours on Saturday in Nanaimo.
so many routes through the Gulf Islands to Nanaimo and the traditionally fickle
winds this night sailed leg will no doubt have most navigators pulling their hair
out. Significant differences in the length of the various routes and tides through
the many passes will prove challenging.
The finish will be off the Visiting Vessels Pier in Nanaimo Harbour. Excellent
Time: Boats have until 0800 on June 29 to finish this leg.
Moorage will again be hosted by the Nanaimo Port Authority. Please
contact the Harbour Master upon your arrival.
Party: Sunday June 29, 1130 hrs. A Gala Awards Party at the Newcastle
